Congressman Cole Includes Funds for Highway 19 in Highway Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole was able to secure $3 million for enhancements to Highway 19 from Ada to Stratford in the Transportation Reauthorization bill that passed in the House today. The Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (H.R. 3) now awaits action by the Senate.
"These funds will help alleviate safety and traffic impediments for travelers between Stratford and Ada. I will continue to work to make sure these funds are included in the final version of the legislation. I hope that this bill will move quickly through the rest of the legislative process, so work can begin as soon as possible," Congressman Cole said.
Congressman Cole was able to include $16 million for priority projects in Oklahoma's Fourth Congressional District in The Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (H.R. 3).
